George Lambert Art

British, 1700-1765

George Lambert was an English artist born in 1700. He divided his career equally between the theatre scene painting and landscape painting professions. For most of his life, he lived in Covent Garden, London. His early style of the 1720s is similar to that of John Wootton. However, his later classical landscapes earned him the accolade the father of English landscape and the English Poussin. Lambert painted the landscape backgrounds for William Hogarth’s paintings, The Pool of Bethesda and The Good Samaritan, made for St Bartholomew’s Hospital (1736–37). In 1761, he was elected chairman of the newly founded Society of Artists of Great Britain. The Society received the Royal Seal on 26th January 1765 and just five days later Lambert died at his home in Covent Garden, leaving his possessions to his servant, Ann Terry.
